of these situations. aurora was the worst single killing with a gun. 70 people. this incident in sandy hook was the worst school shooting. is there a national crisis and is the president right to identify the solution as to at least trying to deal with this, banning these type of assault weapons and the high capacity magazine clips and also as mayor booker says here, trying to register the ownership of guns in a much more sensible manner? >> i think the president recognized today in a very appropriate statement that we have to look at a variety of risk factors that have created this epidemic, this carnage, and he talked in his remarks, when he identified the vice president as leading -- beginning to lead is that national conversation. he did understandably point to firearms. but i think very appropriately he talked about our mental health system. he talked about a culture of violence that dominates in many of our urban areas. if we are serious about dealing with this and reducing the risk that it will happen again, i and think we have to be clear to the audience and all of america, it's ver
and a big adjustment next year. but i hope we can all focus on making it a positive one and making sandy hook a happy place like it was. the way i could describe that school, it was like mayberry, going there in the morning and dropping your children off and seeing the other parents. it was just happy. everybody was happy. the teachers, the staff, the children. and it's not that anymore. and i hope some day that could be the case again, that it is a happy place where children can gather and play. i don't know where to start. >> neil, i thank you for your time. i really do. and i can only offer you my deepest condolences, my prayers and hope that you and the other ti.,veo ke3w akt prevent tragedies like the one in newtown from happeningga. lissmchange iun happeningga. relai it? i had a town hall debate in which the common thread of everybody is that these things keep happening. how do we stop them from happening again? this has been happening in your state. you've lived the terrible trauma of these families. what is the most constructive, definitive thing that america's lawmakers can now
history. a gunman walked into sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut and opened fire. he killed 20 children, young children from 5 to 10 years old. the shootings took place in two rooms of one section of the school and he killed at least six adults before killing himself. police found the body of the suspect's mother in his home earlier in the day. a prayer vigil was held in a church and took place a mile away from the sandy hook elementary. hundreds were in attendance. at the white house a vigil was held with people gathering for more gun control. many say it demands tougher legislation. in the white house, a visibly shaken president obama offered these words about the mass killing. >> the majority of those who died today were children. beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. they had their entire lives ahead of them. birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. among the fallen were also teachers. men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams. >> highly emotional president obama reflecting how most of th

covered this ever night since the sandy hook massacre and we did the same after aurora and others and there's been this escalation in the scale of these atrocities and i have been getting angry this week at some of the gun rights people who have come on the show, very angry, and i have been accused of being rude and all the rest of it. if you can't get angry over the cold-blooded murder of 20 school children age 6 and 7 years old, when do you get angry? who do americans say enough, this is not going to continue? by the way, what he didn't mention today, wayne lapierre, he didn't mention anything about assault weapons other than to try to play down what they are. he didn't mention high-capacity magazines. he didn't explain why the killer in aurora needed 100 bullets in a magazine. what is the purchase of the mass slaughter. nor did he mention background checks. 40% of all gun trades, there's no background check. had he done any of those things, someone would have said, he's making some good effort. there was nothing. >> that's right. a guy like me who thinks there's just too many h
of hot water for making nice with president obama in the wake of hurricane sandy. >> 2.8 million people without power. i've watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today, really quite unprecedented. i've never seen anything quite like it. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. you know, you see sights like the seaside heights board walk where the program "the jersey shore" is filmed, the board walk is gone. it is gone. music rides, roller coaster ride, in the ocean. it's incredible. homes destroyed. it's an awful thing. >> you've taken charge, as you've always done in these situations, in a very impressive way. people have been surprised you've been so outspokenly supportive and praiseworthy to the president. i'm not surprised knowing you but explain to me why you were happy to do that so close to an election when some might say politically that wasn't the best thing to do. >> this is much more important than any election, piers. this is the livelihood of the people in my state. when the president does this evenings that deserve praise, i wi

shooting in sandy hook. the nra breaks its silence. president obama and communities all over america paused in a moment of silence. president obama is calling for a ban on assault weapons. today, the nra offered a rather different solution. publicly breaking the silence. the silence for the first time since the massacre, the nra proposed a sweeping plan to have armed guards at every school in the nation. >> the truth is our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters. people that are so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons that no sane person can ever possibly comprehend them. they walk among us every single day. and does anybody really believe that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school? since when did a gun automatically become a bad word? a gun in the hands of a secret service agent protecting our president isn't a bad word. a gun in the hands of a soldier protecting the united states of america isn't a bad word. and when you hear your glass breaking at 3:00 a.m. and you call 911, you won't be able to pray hard enough for a g

out of the school. out of the sandy hook elementary by the police and teachers and raced on foot to a nearby fire station which became the staging area. they were robo calls that went out. we heard the robocalls saying parents of the sandy hook students, come to this fire station to be reunited with your children. throughout the day there was one area within that fire station where the children were kept and they were shown movies until their parents could come and find them. there was another area where a number of the parents were milling about, waiting for students to be brought into the fire station. you can imagine it was a chaotic scene for sometime. slowly but surely over the course of the day parents arrive and children were taken away and parents continued to wait and other children didn't arrive and ultimately there was a moment where they had to tell the waiting parents there will be no more reunions tonight. i'm told from someone who was inside that area in a room adjacent that at the moment the parents were told there would be no more children coming there were wails
know that when danger arrived in the halls of sandy hook elementary, the school's staff did not flinch. they did not hesitate. dawn hochsprung and mary sherlach, vicki soto, lauren russeau, rachel davino and anne marie murphy, they all responded in how we hope we all would respond in such terrifying circumstances, with courage and with love, giving their lives to protect the children in their care. we know that there were other teachers who barricaded themselves inside classrooms and kept steady through it all and reassured their students by saying wait for the good guys, they are coming. show me your smile. and we know that good guys came, the first responders who raced to the scene helping to guide those in harm's way to safety and comfort those in need, holding at bay their own shock and their own trauma, because they had a job to do and others needed them more. and then there were the scenes of the school children helping one another, holding each other, dutifully following instructions in the way that young children sometimes do. one child even trying to encourage a grownup by say
